One-Step Preparation of Fibrous Aggregates of Gold Nanoparticles Using Aniline as Reducing Agent as well as Monomer
Nanoscaled fibrous aggregates of gold nanoparticles have been synthesized by a simultaneous reduction-oxidation polymerization process using aniline as reducing agent as well as monomer in an ethanol medium. Time-dependent UV-Vis absorption spectroscopy was used to track the formation process of gold nanoparticles. The transmission electron microscopy (TEM) images and Fourier transform infrared (FT-IR) spectrum of the as-preapred products indicate these gold nanoparticles were binded by the oxidation polymerization resultant of aniline.
